Feelin’ less than…

Mirrors

Mirrors aren’t so great you see,

because they show the real me.

Mirrors show the flaws of youth

Like gross pimples or a crooked tooth.

Frizzy hair or hair too straight,

plain eyes that aren’t too great.

Mirrors show the steps of age

like crow’s feet and eyes that fade.

Graying skin and a double chin,

beautiful hair that’s way too thin.

Mirrors aren’t so great, in fact,

I do believe mine is packed.

Behind the wigs and makeup case,

the ironing board and an old cracked vase.

The more I have to examine my face,

the more I like that old cracked vase.

Mirrors, what a waste.
